UK offer of trade regulations ‘hollow’

Source: --- Thursday, November 30, 2017
Any offer by Theresa May’s government in the crunch Brexit talks that merely involved regulations and standards for trade would still lead to a hard border in Ireland and should be rejected outright by Dublin, one of the country’s leading EU experts has warned. Edgar Morgenroth, of the Economic and Social Research Institute, said that an apparent London “concession” for a so-called “no regulatory change” agreement for goods entering the North after the UK leaves the EU, as a way to lift a possible Irish veto over the Brexit talks, would prove to be hollow and highly dangerous. “What is apparently being put forward by the British does not deal with the border issue. I would be worried that someone is going to accept that [offer] because we will still end up with a hard border,” Prof Morgenroth told the Irish Examiner. But the Government would never be in a better negotiating position and should not allow the border issue to drift, he added. ...

Brexit Border Deal Could Threaten The UK Government

Watch Video Right now, the U.K.'s government  is being  propped up by a small party from Northern Ireland. But Brexit could change that. Officials from the Democratic Unionist Party are  considering pulling  their support of the ruling Conservative Party, depending on how Brexit affects the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland. SEE MORE: A Brexit Deal Starts To Form Before A Key December Deadline Once the U.K. leaves the European Union, it'll follow different trade and customs rules than the Republic of Ireland, which is still in the EU. That'll affect Ireland's border with the U.K., which is relatively open and unrestricted now. Negotiators are  reportedly planning  a Brexit deal that keeps the border as it is now — but that'd involve giving Northern Ireland different trade rules than the rest of the U.K., which the DUP argues is unfair. U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May can't muster a majority in Parliament without DUP votes. If the Northern Ireland party deserts her, May could be looking at the end of her term in office. ...
